THE MONDAY GRUDGE

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courafe by taking away people’s initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

    According to Snopes, the excellent wisdom at the top of today’s Grudge is one of the most famous cases of misattribution in history. It was originally published in 1912 by Rev. Wm. John Boetcker, then some years later, was included in a pamphlet with quotations by Lincoln. People no longer knew who Boetcker was, so they just attached Lincoln to the whole thing. None of this makes any of it less true or valuable, just interesting how we prefer wisdom to have come from the mouths of people we know of and admire. Like, somehow that makes it all the more wise? Whatever. Thanks for publishing, Pete. I’d never seen that before.
